Baghdad Blast Kills Eleven

Eleven dead in bombing.

Authorities in Iraq now say eleven people are dead following an attack in Baghdad today. They say a suicide attacker set off a massive car bomb at a checkpoint near the British Embassy and the interim Iraqi government's headquarters, killing four Iraqi national guardsmen and seven Iraqi civilians. The US military says many of the civilians were waiting in line to apply for jobs. The car had been packed with a thousand pounds of explosives. Some 40 people were injured, including a US soldier and a worker for the Reuters news agency.
